On the last two weekends the Green and green liberal party (GLP) celebrated the landslide-like victories in Zurich, Lucerne and Basel-land. Now both the green choice winner want to exclude the currently most important policy proposal of immigration: the tax-AHV-Deal, the Federal Parliament has been built. Both parties have no decided on Saturday with clear slogans to the so-called STAF-template. The Greens voted in Sierre VS with 93 votes to 10 no. The green liberals, the days in Wangen an der Aare, BE, rejected the template with 94 votes to 27. In both parties there were also some abstentions.
The big green Unity? Far from it. Hardly a political business shows so clearly how the STAF how different the two green parties actually are. Although the left Greens and the liberal Greens ' no ' to the template to say, but your arguments are very different, even contradictory.
The Green in Siders were in favour of the AHV-part of the template, i.e. the Two-billion cash injection for the pension. The tax-in part to bring "tax gifts for large corporations" and is therefore a "tax bschiss". The template is causing a tax hole of 2.1 billion Swiss francs and the middle class will pay the costs, warned party President Regula Rytz their delegates. For the municipalities and cantons of the template, causing virtually the same high costs as the the people rejected corporate tax reform III. The STAF template is a matter of "old wine in new hoses".
"At the expense of the young"
Exactly, the political signs are reversed in the case of the green liberal party: they are not part of interfere with the control part of the template, but on the AHV. You need a control template in order to keep the economic and Research location of Switzerland internationally competitive, said the party after its Congress of delegates. The GLP rejects, however, the AHV money syringe, with which the majority of the template, a majority wants to do. "The AHV-Deal is an attack on the generational contract, because in order for real reforms to the old-age pension at the expense of the boys moved," said national councillor Kathrin Bertschy (BE) in front of the GLP-delegates. In addition, the template violates the unity of matter.
The battle of the two green parties against the STAF template, however, is difficult. According to a recent Tamedia-vote survey, 62 percent of respondents support currently, the Federal law on tax reform and social security funding (STAF). 30 percent reject the template, 8 percent are still undecided. The vote will take place on 19. The end of may.
the Almost unanimous Yes to the weapons law
much more the slogans to the second template, were in two parties, on the 19. May will be matched. The Greens said a unanimous Yes to the tightening of the arms to the right, the green liberals almost unanimously - with only two votes against and one abstention. (Editorial Tamedia)
